Cadenhead’s ‘Original Collection’ Deanston 10 Year Old 700ml 46%
A new 2020 collection matured in Bourbon and Maderia casks
Cask Type: Bourbon/Madeira
Release Date: 2020
This Deanston 10-year-old is part of Wm Cadenhead’s latest 2020 ‘Original Collection’ that has replaced the earlier Single Cask and Small Batch collections with the entire range bottled at 46% ABV. Matured as a vatting of 80% Bourbon casks and 20% Madeira casks, the distillery calls it….. “a well-balanced cask make-up, some sweetness and a long finish make for an interesting dram”
As with all Cadenhead bottlings, this ‘Original Collection’ is non-chill filtered with no added colouring. Australia only receives a very small allocation of Wm Cadenhead’s each year making the brand a very sort after indie on our shores.
